What do we have here? The Day Sheet from a show with my old band, Vampire Love Dolls, a band called Uranium 235 and a band called Dope. Next to it some complimentary pharmaceutical stationary with a note from my mom to call Jeremy and a guy named Edsel.
There's a lot going on in this photo and just sort of 'stream of consciousness' blurb it onto the keyboard...
This was one of my first shows sober.
Why did my Mom write this note? Because I was trying to get my shit together and sober up (talk about humble beginings!)
My old friend Christian Martucci (who is now in Stone Sour and still one of my best friends) played bass for us at this gig.
It seemed like NYC was going to be 'The Next LA' for Industrial/Goth/NuMetal and we were all a part of it.
I always tried to be professional and print out day sheets..even if it was on weird craft store paper (which is sort of embarrassing now)...I think I thought it was goth...
Uranium 235 was awesome!
U235's guitarist ended up being my tech when I ended up getting the Joan Jett gig 15 years latter or whatever.
Edsel and Jeremy are STILL some of my best friends.
I wish Jenny Anydots still lived on Lafayette St.
Why do some of us get it and others don't?
